Working Equitation is an exciting fun sport that challenges our horsemanship. For more information about Working Equitation visit the AZ Working Equitation club website (link below).
What is Working Equitation (WE)?
● WE is a fast growing riding competition that anyone can participate in, from beginner to advanced level riders, all breeds, and all disciplines.
● WE is an opportunity to test the skills and abilities of both the horse and rider for the qualities needed in a working environment. Promoting good horsemanship while allowing people to ride in the traditional tack and attire of their heritage.
● WE is great fun for horses, riders and spectators!
● All breeds of horse are welcome to participate
What makes up a WE competition? Four “phases”:
1. Working Dressage (arena flat work)
2. Ease of Handling (obstacle course)
3. Speed (timed obstacle course)
4. Cattle Handling (only at the higher level competitions)
In partnership with Rodolfo (Rudy) Lara of ‘Vaquero Horsemanship through Classical Riding’ we will be holding a few clinic this spring! These workshops are designed to build strong foundations in our horsemanship based on Classical principles. Soft feel, lightness, self carriage, proper bio-mechanics and movement, refined riding ... all while building a strong relationship with your equine. These workshops support a wide range of riding disciplines - Dressage, Working Equitation, Competitive Trail, or just overall good horsemanship.
